25 years of the world wide web: how has it changed health and safety?


It’s hard to remember what we did without it now, but 25 years ago, the world wide web was a proposal by Tim Berners-Lee to combine hypertext with the internet. The first website was created at CERN in 1991, and well, the rest is history.

The web has had such a wide-ranging impact on our day-to-day lives — both at home and at work. We’d like to know how it has changed the world of health and safety.

What benefits has the web had on your working lives? What challenges has it created? Let us know your thoughts on the web in the comment section below.
